Let Gutter Helmet save you from Fall Leaves

Let Gutter Helmet save you from Fall Leaves

Autumn leaves are generally considered to be a good thing. Beautiful autumn leaves can even be considered a tourist attraction in some locations. However, they can cause many problems for your home – some that you may not even have thought to expect. Take a look at what you need to know about the problem of fall leaves and how gutter guards might be the best solution.

It doesn’t matter how pretty the autumn leaves are when they wind up here.

Fall Leaves Cost Money and Require Effort

One good reason you might want to avoid fall leaves this autumn is that they’re going to land in many places, and one of those places will be your gutter system. And when leaves end up in your gutter system, they need to be removed. Unfortunately, that means you must do the work to clean them out of your gutters or pay someone to clean them out for you. 

Often, neither of these options is preferable. If you’re a homeowner who doesn’t want to spend hours scooping goop out of gutters or doesn’t want to risk climbing up high, that’s understandable. But the other option is to pay someone else to do the same thing, and that’s not cheap, because it’s a difficult job for them too. 

Fall Leaves Can Lead to Water Damage

What happens if the gutters fill up with fall leaves and you don’t get rid of them? Maybe you intend to, but you keep putting it off or waiting to save up some money to pay for the service instead of doing it yourself. But not cleaning the fall leaves has consequences.

One of these consequences is that the gutters will eventually become clogged. A lot of people don’t necessarily know what will happen when their gutters get clogged – they just know they aren’t supposed to allow the gutters to become clogged. But why? Once your gutters get clogged, the water still has to go somewhere. So, it goes over the gutter’s sides and spills down the walls. It gets pushed up to the roof and works its way under the tiles or shingles. Finally, it drains down onto the landscaping and washes soil away or leaks into the foundation, damaging it. Ultimately, fall leaves lead to potentially costly water damage. 

Fall Leaves Can Fuel a House Fire

Could you have imagined these could be a fire hazard?

You probably never thought that autumn leaves would be a fire risk for your home, but they can be. Sure, when the rain comes, those leaves can clog up the gutters. But what about when it’s dry? Remember, fall leaves drop because they’re dead – and dry. So if they land in your gutter system, and a small spark hits those leaves, think how easily those leaves – and then the house – could go up in flames.

You can prevent these dangers by keeping your gutters clean, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to clean them all the time. With gutter guards such as Gutter Helmet installed on your home’s gutters, the leaves won’t make it into your gutter system in the first place. That protects your house and keeps you from having to clean gutters or shell out for the service.

1 Million+ Satisfied Customers Nationwide

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
